Hybrid amp, two lamps, of course, but stuffed with FETs. This is absolutely not an "all lamps" ...
1 Watt, gain, volume, equalization (ISF), reverb
The whole lot in a HP 8-inch


No need for manual
Its clear and saturated correct, nothing exceptional.
Big problem, a very low hum rot volume. A change of lamps did nothing.
Jacks and my guitars have been tested on other amps, the problem is the HT1
A background, fortunately, we forget a little


sounds are relatively versatile, tested with three guitars, Fender Telecaster, Gretsch 5120 and Yamaha SA 2000S. I have a rock / blues rather classic game.
I plugged into a Cab equipped with a 12 inch Celestion, the sound is rounder.
Much of the ISF are doing, there is nothing to get excited ...


I've had three months, bought after reading rave reviews here.
I hope to Blackstar firing a wrong number.
Overall, I am very disappointed, and I sold off as soon as possible.
